If we’re looking for effortlessly cool style inspiration, we consistently turn to the Jennifers. Naturally, we’re talking about Jennifer Lopez, Aniston, and Lawrence. In fact, we recently covered the skinny-jean outfits and shoe styles this trio wear. And to dive deeper into these categories, we decided to combine the two areas to uncover the specific shoe styles the Jens often pair with their denim.
Believe it or not, the footwear styles in question actually skew on the “simple” end. Sure, they’re all still incredibly fashion-forward, but the silhouettes could be considered simple in the sense that they’re versatile and can be paired with a variety of items. To showcase what we mean, we’re highlighting the best shoes to wear with jeans (complete with shopping recommendations)—inspired by the chicest Jennifers out there.
On Jennifer Lopez: Valentino bag; Alexander McQueen Sneakers ($490)
A pair of clean white sneakers is effortless with skinny jeans and a tucked-in knit.
On Jennifer Lawrence: Citizens of Humanity jeans; Prada jacket; Acne Studios mules
Mules (either flat or heeled) bring that extra layer of cool polish to an ensemble like this one featuring button-front jeans, a blouse, and a statement coat.
On Jennifer Lopez: Balmain blazer; Christian Louboutin heels
Pointed heels will take your dressed-up denim look to the next level. And sure, J.Lo's heels here aren't necessarily "simple," but it's the overall shape that makes them a classic.
